I had enjoyed the music I was playing before, but there is something about the heightened joy of singing, “Jesus alive!” that makes it difficult to contain myself. Yesterday morning during Tenebrae prayer, we chanted lines that elicited the same feeling of excitement inside me.
Even the bleakest life
sustains the consciousness
that somewhere, somehow,
there is going to be a resurrection,
a rebirth of life, of joy, of beauty,
that will never fade.
There is going to be a resurrection,
a rebirth of joy,
of beauty that will never fade.
May we believe this is to be true; this is the night, after all.
Easter blessings to each of you.
Let us walk in the holy presence.
